The 1993 Philadelphia Phillies season saw the Phillies capture the
National League Eastchampionship. The Phillies defeated the Atlanta Bravesin the National League Championship Seriesin six games, before losing the World Series to the Toronto Blue Jays.
After finishing in last place the year before, the Phillies took the lead in the NL East on opening day, and never relinquished the lead, as they clinched the division title on September 28 in Pittsburgh.
The 1993 Phillies were led by stars such as
Darren Daulton, John Kruk, Lenny Dykstra, and Curt Schilling. The team was often described as "shaggy," "unkempt," and "dirty." The previous year, noting the presence of the clean-cut Dale Murphy, Kruk himself described the team as "24 morons and one Mormon." Their character endeared them to fans, and attendance reached a record high the following season. As a play on the legendary Baseball Year|1927 New York Yankees' Murderers' Row, the team's dirty, mullet-wearing look was dubbed "Macho Row." To the surprise of their city and the nation, the Phillies powered their way to a 97-65 record and an NL East division title.
During the season there were a multitude of memorable moments. In late April, the team rallied from 8-0 down to beat the
San Francisco Giants9-8 in 10 innings, spurred when Giants reliever Bryan Hickerson slammed the ball off the turf to celebrate an out. In San Diego, a few days later, left-fielder Milt Thompson saved a game by making a leaping catch on a potential grand slam by Padres catcher Bob Geren. Terry Mulhollandhurled the first shutout in Mile High Stadiumas the Phils swept the expansion Colorado Rockiesin late May. On July 2, the Phils and Padres hooked up for a doubleheader which lasted almost 12 hours with rain delays. Mitch Williamswon the second game on an RBI single at 4:41 AM. Five days after that, Lenny Dykstraended a 7-6, 20-inning affair against the Dodgers at the Vet with a ground-rule double.
A three-game sweep of the
St. Louis Cardinalsto end July effectively pushed the Redbirds out of the pennant chase, and Danny Jackson's 12-0 rout of Cincinnation August 29 left the Cards 10 out and Expos 10 1/2 out with one month to go.
However, a September slip caused some columnists in the city to compare the club to the infamous 1964 team. They dropped five of seven at home to the Cubs and Astros, then lost two of three at Olympic Stadium which brought Montreal within four with 13 games remaining.
All that was put to rest on September 28, as the Phils wrapped up the NL East with a 10-7 win over Pittsburgh at
Three Rivers Stadium. Mariano Duncanhit a grand slam to lead a comeback effort, and little-used Donn Pallclosed out the game, touching off a wild celebration for their first division crown since 1983.
